The Culture of Curation is a segmented online group show that works to cultivate freedom in its disclosure of linear choice. In this form, it bears witness to its own limitations and lack of fixity. The work featured in the eight segments do not have any sole definition, but are grouped as they suit our thesis within the given context. In creating an online exhibition, we realized its inherent elasticity. When faced with our own decisions about creating a more straightforward show, which we as gallerists do every month, we elected to create eight individual shows and let the viewer choose a path to follow.
While we are still acting as filter, we are able to pass on the freedom of choice to the viewer, with the added element of play. By choosing from the options laid out in the flow chart, a path is created that leads to one of eight exhibitions making up the complete thesis. While proceeding through the flow chart, the ability to step back and make new choices remains, allowing the freedom to move through the chart in reaction to the parameters set by Cindy Rucker and Brad Silk as curators.
